Laceby Primitive Methodist society dates from 1837. The Caistor Road chapel in the picture was built in 1877 and served until 1955.

The attendance at Primitive Methodist services in Laceby on Sunday 30th March 1851 was morning service 40, afternoon service 60, evening service 100. 

After closure it became a Youth Centre. Google Street View in 2010 shows it as the Scout HQ.

The first Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1837 or 1839 in what is now known as 'Old Chapel Road'. It seems to have been replaced by the later chapel in Caistor Road. The Chapel can be seen on the Tithe Map of 1840. The Tithe Award was drawn up on 19 June 1840, and the building (plot 19 on the map) was owned by the Trustees of the Primitive Methodists. If anyone is near Lincolnshire Archives, I believe there might be some records relating to the chapel, including the deeds and names of trustees, which would be fascinating to know. The Chapel was built in a corner of a paddock belonging to Robert Wilson, a farm labourer, who was my great (x4) grandfather.  I suspect he might have been a Primitive Methodist himself, and might have given the land for the chapel.
